[applause] first thing we have to learn is to accept the fact, i believe it is a fact, that climate change is real. it is denial to say this is -- each of these situations is a once in a lifetime. there is a 100 year flood every two years now. it is inarguably that the sea is warmer and there is a changing weather pattern. the time to act is now. we must lower the greenhouse gas emission cap and let's make a real difference on climate change by reducing the co2 cap. we must also increase the local renewable power sources. also increase alternative power, generate electricity which will reduce the reliance on the large power plants. we must understand the needs of coastal communities because they pose special challenges and many of them are man-made. let's take
is live in new york where one long island town agreed to take on the a major part of the hurricane sandy cleanup. rick? >> reporter: if you're wondering what happened to all those cars damaged by hurricane sandy. we have the answer for you out here on the east end of long island. tens of thousands of vehicles. why they're here and where they're headed coming up next jon: right now, prosecutors resting their case against the 12-year-old california boy charged with killing his neo-nazi father. rick folbaum is following this story from our new york newsroom. rick? >> a couple of interesting things in this case, jon. this is a case that may wrap up very quickly. first of all the defense team has withdrawn its plea of insanity in this case. they originally put in a plea that this young boy, joseph hall, did not know what he was doing at the time that he shot his father in the head about two years ago. they have now withdrawn that and they're saying instead that they have would like the judge in this case to throw it out because in their mind the prosecution has not adequately proved its case.
aid for hurricane sandy relief. what did christie focus on the most in this address? >> in his address yesterday, he talked about the storm that reshaped the jersey shoreline and underscored the delayed response in federal funding when compared to other disasters. >> we as a state have waited 72 days, seven times longer than the victims of hurricane katrina waited. and one thing i hope everyone in america now clearly understands, new jersey, both republicans and democrats, will never stand silent when our citizens are being short-changed. we have stood with the citizens of florida and alabama, mississippi and louisiana, iowa and vermont, california and missouri, in their times of need. now i trust they will stand with us. >> he also said washington could learn a thing or two from new jersey about the art of compromise. >> now, we've had our fights. and we have stuck to our principles. but we have established a governing model for america that shows that even with heartfelt beliefs, bipartisan compromise is possible. achievement is the result. and progress for our people is the payoff.
leadership in the aftermath of hurricane sandy. no doubt about it, he stood up to his party for their actions and how they didn't do what they were supposed to do early on to get relief from congress. but now is the time for real leadership, passing the buck on to the entertainment industry, governor, is nothing but a cop-out. it's a great way to divert attention from a politically delicate situation and difficult position. >> i don't let games like call of duty in my house for ps3 and xbox. that's a decision mary pat and i have made. you cannot tell me sitting in the basement for hours playing call of duty and killing people over and over and over again does not desensitize that child to the real life effects of violence. >> i don't disagree with governor christy. parenting, it's a responsibility. parents have to parent. but there is no legislation to keep a kid from playing video games in this country. christie wants to, if he wants to be in the big leagues when it comes to politics, this is the issue. he should look to his counterpart across the river in new york as an example. >> forget t
, games such as these have zero, zero connection to mass killings such as the massacre at sandy hook school, which ignited the current discussion on guns and gun violence. jay thomas, emmy award winning actor, sirius radio talk show host, welcome back to the show. good to see you. >> thank you. >> let me read something that i read here from a psychologist. this is christopher jay ferguson, writing after the sandy hook massacre, writing in "time." there is no good evidence that video games or other media contributes, even in a small way, to mass homicides or any other violence among youth. on the other hand, let me mention this, you have senator jay rockefeller leading this charge against the industry. he wants an investigation into video game violence. jay thomas, where do you come down on this? >> you know, forget where i come down on it, i have three boys and they are from 19 to 30, and they play these video games all the time. i think it is all lip service because it is so much money involved. i mean, "call of duty" did a billion dollars like in a matter of months. and so it will
infrastructure is in the wake of sandy and other things. i actually think the ingredients are there. i don't think there is one blinding moment where everybody sort of gets religion and says we're going to do it, but we're on our way back. >> positive signs. economic growth will probably pick up and a good chance we'll get comprehensive immigration reform in 2013, which would be good for any number of reasons. corporate tax reform. there seems to be bipartisan support for that. we'll resolve, if you will, the fiscal challenges of the year? no. we'll kick cans down the road. use whatever cliche you want. a bit of momentum, finally, in the right direction. >> economic momentum in the u.s. that will reduce some of the political pressure. the u.s. isn't europe and a deal isn't as urgent and won't be until 2013, but i think a little less polarized than it has been in obama's first term. >> on that optimistic note, thank you, all. good way to say it, happy 2013. >>> we will be back. him. morning starts in high spirits, but there's a growing pain in his lower back. as lines grow longer, his pain
research on public health consequences of gun ownership. >>> sandy hook elementary students went back to school this week in a different building, and in some ways a very different world. also today, the wounded survivor of another mass shooting, former congresswoman gabby giffords paid a visit to newtown, connecticut. take a look, the moment captured by a white house photographer when president obama got word of the newtown massacre. the president called it the worst day of his presidency. consequently, he's made gun control a key term of his second agenda, but you may not be aware the health care bill contains a little known item ability guns. it bars doctors from collecting data about their patients' gun use. consider that merely owning a gun increases your chances of homicide and suicide, it's not such a strange thing to study, but the nra objected. we wanted to ask them why, but they declined to come on "360." we're joined by peter from the "post" who has been reporting the story. as a doctor and a journalist, i was surprised to read about the provisions in the affordable care ac

. there was hurricane sandy in the u.s. all around the world, a couple of years back in the kremlin, they had to ban wheat exports because they're having such extreme heat waves the could not export it anymore. we saw the price of grain go up threefold around the world. the message from all of this and what our weather agencies have been telling us, this is the new normal. this is not some freak extreme weather event. we have seen a trend over the past few decades of extreme weather events on the rise, getting worse and worse as we put more carbon pollution into the atmosphere and make climate change worse. >> you're just in antarctica. can you describe going from australia to antarctica and back? >> i just got back to australia yesterday from antarctica, where i was talking to people there about the impacts of climate change. western and predict that is still very cold, but it is actually the most quickly warming land mass. west antarctica has more than three times the global average -- has warmed more than three times the global average. it is having an impact on marine life and ocean acidificatio
